Mainland can be broadly divided into four sections:
- The long southern peninsula, south of Lerwick, which has a mixture of moorland and farmland and contains many important archaeological sites.
- The Central Mainland has more farmland and some woodland plantations.
- The West Mainland
- The North Mainland:
The Northmavine peninsula is the land north of the narrow isthmus at Mavis Grind. It is wild, with much moorland and coastal cliffs. North Mainland contains Sullom Voe, whose oil terminal is an important source of employment for the islanders.
